In reality though, just like vitamin supplements, these hormones are commercially processed. “Bioidentical hormone therapy (BHT) is not more natural,” says Dr Davison. “In fact bioidentical hormones are made from synthesised substances, just like [HRT]. Also, just because a substance is derived from something natural, it doesn’t mean it is safe,” says Dr Newman. “Tobacco is a beautiful green leafy plant!”
